Car 2084 is at the near end of an 8-car train of 2000-series cars, still in their original paint scheme but already about seven years old, looking south at throat to 98th Yard from 95th Street on July 4, 1971. More 2000s are visible in the background. At the time, all 180 cars in the series were assigned to the Lake-Dan Ryan Line. (Photo by Joe Testagrose)
